No Comment 29 Views

Sony released details on two new tablets that it has in the works. The tablets will be Google Android-based, Honeycomb to be exact (the tablet specific version of the OS), and will release this autumn.

Will they succeed? They’re coming late to the tablet party, but have included a lot of Sony-specific features.

The Sony S1 Honeycomb Tablet:

  • 9.4-inch LCD
  • Front and rear cameras
  • Wi-fi or 3G/4G connectivity
  • IR Bravia control
  • DLNA music and video

The Sony S2 Honeycomb Tablet:

  • Laptop-shaped
  • Dual 5.5-inch LCD
  • Front and rear cameras
  • Wi-fi or 3G/4G connectivity
  • IR Bravia control
  • DLNA music and video

Both tablets will support Playstation Suite. Does that mean we can expect some cool cross-platform Xperia Play, Sony Tablet (and perhaps NGP?) gameplay coming soon? They do mention ’cross-deviceconnectivity’ in the literature for the devices.

The units will of course tie into Qriocity (see latest update on hacker intrusion)

This last photo is from Engadget who snapped a shot of the S1 with Crash Bandicoot on it. notice the control scheme. Look familiar?

So now we could have Sony home consoles, portable gaming devices, gaming smartphones and tablets...how’s that for solidifying a widespread base for gaming platforms, all of which can run the same software. Hopefully they will all be able to hook into PSN. While Sony has had some security problems with Playstation Network of late, that will be resolved and the network will be strengthened for it. So why not tie all your devices together with one account?
